What if technology could detect deadly fires precisely where and when they start and extinguish them in minutes?
XPRIZE Wildfire is a five-year competition that will recruit interdisciplinary teams of innovators from around the world to develop and scale integrated systems that can autonomously detect and assess potentially catastrophic wildfires immediately upon onset to suppress locally and warn globally.
This prize has two key tracks on local and large-scale fire detection. We need both tracks for this prize to have the most successful outcomes for wildfire detection.
Donate to help us detect and suppress wildfires.
EVERY YEAR, wildfires cause a massive global economic burden, destroy homes and habitats, and result in devastating injuries and loss of life.
